Together with NHS Improvement the CQC have today started consulting on plans to fully implement the process that both organisations will use to report on how NHS non-specialist acute trusts are using their resources to provide high quality, efficient and sustainable care.
They are asking for your views on the proposed approach to working with NHS Improvement to reflect their assessment of trusts’ use of resources in published CQC inspection reports and trust-level ratings.
They are also seeking feedback on how they can best combine the rating that will be awarded for use of resources with CQC’s five trust-level quality ratings, and how they will generate new combined ratings at the trust level.
The consultation will run from 8 November 2017 to 10 January 2018.
You can feedback on the consultation here and it would be greatly appreciated if you can share through your networks.
